What’s next for Mexico’s fractured left?

MEXICO CITY — After taking second place with 31 percent of the vote, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is anything but retiring to the countryside. Instead, he’s doing what he did after the last election in 2006: refusing to accept defeat, urging supporters to join him in peaceful disobedience. Only this time, Lopez Obrador has split from the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) and its two smaller allies to start a new one. Where does that leave Mexico's divided left?

Mexican election protesters now claiming media corruption
